after 4.5 years of school, two degrees and an internship at paste magazine, i still couldn’t find a decent job in journalism. so i signed up to teach english in south korea for a year. everyone kept telling me, “you should start a blog!” so i started a blog. if you scroll back through old entries, you’ll find lots of photos from my travels in the ROK and a 10-month backpacking trip through europe. now, this blog acts as a brain dump for all the things i write as a member of the culture commentariat and the things i come up with in bed late at night or early in the morning.

  4. Hello!

    I came across your blog when I was looking up information on the Haeundae SLP. I am in Korea currently and teaching at a different SLP, I really want to move to Busan for my next job, and was just curious about your experience at the school and if you would recommend teaching there.


    • Amy,

      So sorry, but I just saw this. The email I used to have my comment notifications sent to went kaput, and I forgot to update it.

      If you still need info about living and working in Busan, please email me at rachelbscribbles@gmail.com, and I’ll be happy to share the info, opinions, stories, whatever I’ve got.


  5. I was recently offered a job at slp institute in Busan. I am wondering if we could talk sometime about your experience there. I am a bit hesitant to take the job, because of some bad reviews I have seen online. We could communicate over e-mail if you want.

    • Hi Grace,

      Email would actually be the worst way probably!

      I liked working at SLP. I’ll be happy to talk about it of you want to give me a call at 304.617.6030. Sorry, I just spend the day in front of a computer, and I have a lot to say, so I’d rather not tap it out on the keyboard if we could just have a real conversation.

      Call me if you care to!
